the war in afghanistan unhappy he failed to end the bush tax cuts and worried they may be able to cut spending significantly to win an increase in the debt ceiling. he must win his base to have hope of reelection but he knows if the independents who backed him in 2008 and if they don't come back his base isn't enough. even as they gave ground in spending and debt with negotiations with congressional republicans he talked about taxing the rich in the white house news conference this week. by today he was con sill tory again and confident with a deal. he is against kicking an issue down the road. he's the same guy who wanted a debt ceiling increase with no action on spending. eases like a man who took two dates to the prom and is trying to make two people happy. he may not pull it off but he is dancing as fast as he can. >> what about balance in the final deal? >>>> republicans -- the president in congress and democratic party on spending but the president fears that if he gives too much on spending and doesn't give anything seemingly in the deal other than the debt spending he will be

, that's clear, isn't it? so there he was, he was making his 15th trip to afghanistan and it was while he was over at camp leatherneck that the marines asked him, okay, if there are a bunch of pentagon cuts, how is that going to affect our equipment and stuff like that. and wherever he has gone so far during this particular swing through the country of afghanistan, the troops are saying are we going to get paid? and he's saying, i don't know. just know this whatever you are owed you'll get paid eventually. you know, and this is how this works down. if we do, talking about if we go into a debt ceiling where we can't pay our bills technically which i don't agree with anyway, let's say, the president has the tablt to decide who gets paid when. clearly the debt is going to get paid first. china and saudi arabia are paid before our military, as bad as that sounds, that has to happen, so our borrowing costs don't go through the roof and then pay the military and social security, and if you dodonn tt order, give the department of education money first, it's the president's fault. it's not congre
service members have been killed in two separate attacks in eastern afghanistan. three troops died of a roadside bomb went off. fourth soldier died in a separate insurgent attack. it's not clear if any of the troops were americans. the latest round of violence brings the death toll to nine coalition troops within the last month. another fox news alert, the mexican navy says it plans to extend the search for seven missing u.s. tourists today. they disappeared early yesterday when a fishing boat capsized in the gulf of california at least one of the 27 americans on board was killed. the boat carrying a total of 44 passengers and crew members appears to have been hit by two massive waves. there's still hope they could be alive. witnesses report some had been wearing life jackets. in just about two hours, 2 1/2 hours, the jury will resume deliberations in the casey anthony murder trial. the jury got the case yesterday afternoon after hearing a final rebuttal from prosecutors arguing that anthony killed her daughter caylee. >> as the facts and circumstances changed over the course of ti
route for aid into afghanistan, so i think what's happening now is that calmer heads are starting to prevail, and i think if these one-on-one talks with the head of the cia and the head of the isi and perhaps with secretary clinton, you're going to see an opportunity to salvage this very important but very tense and troubled relationship. >> indeed. thanks so much for your insight. >>> next, the murdoch hacking scandal moves to the halls of capitol hill. stay with us. us restoring rinse. it's the only listerine® that gets teeth two shades whiter and makes tooth enamel two times stronger. get dual-action listerine® whitening rinse. building whiter, stronger teeth. >>> another high-stakes meeting at the white house begins in just under 40 minute, but it's hard to exaggerate how serious this situation has become, with both sides apparently at loggerheads over how to raise the debt ceiling by the beginning of august. congresswoman loretta sanchez is a congresswoman from california, and i'm delighted to say she joins us. good afternoon. >> good afternoon. thanks for having me. >> do

panetta, the former head of the cia. he's saying on his first trip to afghanistan, his first public comments, really, saying that the defeat of al-qaeda is within reach and here is what he had to say on saturday. >> we're within reach of strategicically defeating al-qaeda. if we could be successful at going after them, i think we can really undermine their ability to do any kind of planning to be able to conduct any kind of attack on this country. but that's that. that's why i think it's within reach 'cause they're going to sake some more work? you bet it is, but i think it's within reach. >> mike: in the first couple of days, is that statement too bold, that statement? >> i like it, covets. >> ainsley: i do, too. >> dave: that was supported by congress and we like his congress and david petraeus echoed that and holds the promise of a strategic defeat of al-qaeda. he is he, too, is confident if we can get more kills, 20, we would crush. >> ainsley: 10 to 20. >> mike: al-qaeda is all over the world and not just in pakistan. >> dave: they believe the head of al-qaeda is in pakistan al
, well, 1.1 of that or more are phantom savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan we're going to end, anyway. those are not real cuts. and boehner wants to come back. it's complicated. i'm still hopeful we'll get something. i think the stock market going down 200 points today, while bad news for 401 k owners i think really did send a powerful message to the congress. you're really playing with fire here now. the markets are -- you thought monday the markets were complacent. they're no longer complacent. they're sending you a strong signal, buddy. get your act together or you're going to have real trouble. >> they can try and play the blame game. >> go ahead, gloria. >> i was going to say, they can try and play the blame game with each other, which i'm sure they will do. because once you pass a bill in the house the republicans can say, look, we've done it. we've done our work. once you pass a bill, a democratic bill in the senate, democrats could say we've done our work. but i think they're beyond that, anderson. because i think they will all suffer in the end if they don't ge

the savings would come from iraq and afghanistan and don't materialize and votes on a balanced budget amendment but what the democrats reviews to do is tie an increase in the debt ceiling to passing the balanced budget amendment. you can see the rough outlines of a deal. any deal would have to go back to the house. would these conservatives especially tea party members that speaker boehner had to make concessions to, what would they do if it comes back monday night just hours before the deadline, would they vote for that? >> 201 votes in favor of this legislation. right now 196. take a look. as of now 12 republicans have bolted from the leadership from john boehner, the speaker, and eric cantor the majority leader and right now 12 republicans have voted against and still not there. 216. there is still plenty of time left. nine minutes plus for this vote to conclude. it's a fascinating development as you say. by the way, we're told john boehner was mulling around and didn't seem overly concerned but it is still not a done deal yet. once this does pass, john, assuming it passes, gets 21
